Using Twitter, Facebook and other social media for business is smart, but it does take time and commitment. Ideally, you’re logging into your accounts, posting, monitoring and engaging every day. As business owners, we don’t always have the time, even if it can only require a few minutes a day. There’s just gotta be an app for that, right?
Luckily, there is a time-effective way to manage several social media accounts; whether you’re at your desk, commuting, between meetings, or at Starbucks borrowing wi-fi.
HootSuite is designed to make our lives easier (4+ million users can’t be wrong, right?). It will help you:
- Manage multiple social profiles (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ Pages,WordPress, Foursquare, and more)
- Schedule messages and tweets
- Track brand mentions
- Analyze social media traffic
It’s available for Web (Internet Explorer 7 or 8, Firefox 3, Safari 4, Chrome 4 and higher), mobile (iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Keitai) and desktop.
